Did you know that 'giving AND receiving' are equal partners. They share the same heart, the same mind and the same soul. Both giving and receiving are partners within you and each of them deserve mutual respect. One without the other doesn't serve you well. That may sound confusing especially if we have heard all of our lives: "It is better to give than to receive."
IT IS better to give than to receive, however, the 'unspoken gem' within the statement is "you are receiving" as you give. Before I go any further, please understand when I speak of giving, it is never to come at your expense. That's not wise! Why? Because the point in giving is to help alleviate the suffering of someone else. If you alleviate their suffering and create suffering for you, then you didn't alleviate anything, you merely switched where suffering would reside.
When you give, you actually release the generosity of spirit which is a boomerang waiting to return to you. It's a feeling of goodness knowing that you gave for all the right reasons. It's the pleasure of knowing that as you gave you were also receiving.
What are you receiving you ask? You are activating one of the secrets of life. That secret is the following: Being generous of spirit opens the door to untold riches. The riches of which I speak are: health, wealth and happiness. You are creating a Bank of Good that will be available to you when you are in need and the generosity of spirit will come to you from a place unknown. However, rest assured generosity of spirit will return!
So my friends, release your generosity of spirit and keep in mind that the boomerang of the universe is always circulating. Give, watch and wait as the boomerang of spirit returns back ten fold!
Until the next time,
